Description

Understanding the gospel, concern for people, love for the Savior: these form the underlying theme of Faith Precedes the Miracle. In nearly three decades as a General Authority, President Kimball has spoken forthrightly to members of the Church, warning of the deceits of Satan and pointing out the road back for those who have erred and who yearn for reconciliation with the Lord. This book is based on some of his sermons and messages, but each one has been edited and revised to a reading style while retaining the basic, highly personal mode of expression. The subjects reflect a genuine concern for how Latter-day Saints can find joy and happiness through living gospel principles, including testimony and revelation, marriage and the family, morality and repentance, righteousness, and the restored church. Each message is an important, direct statement of gospel principles.

Not properly titled
Reviewed in the United States on May 26, 2020
From the title I thought the book would be about dealing with discouragement and trials. Instead it was a book on morality. What he said about morality was good but I didn''t buy the book to read about morality but to support me through some difficult times.

In the Latter-day Saint culture, Spencer W. Kimball''s The Miracle of Forgiveness is legendary. Spencer W. Kimball, the 12th President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is known for his bold and forward speaking and writing style. The Miracle of Forgiveness has no shortage of ''straight talk,'' and Faith Precedes the Miracle is no different. Less well-known and less read among Latter-day Saints than Kimball''s other book, Faith Precedes the Miracle is a good addition to any Latter-day Saint''s library, albeit it''s not as memorable as other spiritual works.

Like most books of its kind, Faith Precedes the Miracle is marred by the presentation and organization of the book. In fact, using the term ''book'' may be a little generous to describe what it is. Rather than being a book it''s a collection of his many speeches on various topics bound together between two covers. I never really care for that kind of a setup simply because the chapters seem so disconnected from one another. I prefer to read a book specifically designed to be so, which I believe lends importance and purpose to the message conveyed. Jesus the Christ by James E. Talmage is a good example of what I''m referring to.

Having said that, there is plenty to love in Faith Precedes the Miracle. It''s a great reference book since President Kimball covers so many topics in this one book. His remarks on family life are, in my opinion, especially poignant and even controversial compared to today''s societal standards. His unapologetic conviction is refreshing and honorable.

There is much to love, yes, but it''s not really all that necessary to buy this book since most of his remarks can be found through other means. I had already listened to many of President Kimball''s talks and, therefore, I was ''re-leaning'' large portions of the book. Faith Precedes the Miracle is great as a reference but not as a stand-alone book.

I love this book! After hearing an excerpt of it on BYU Radio I went straight to Amazon to purchase it so I could read the whole book. It explains and reinforces many of the Church''s values and does it through personal stories from President Kimball. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to read about relationships between mother and child, husband and wife, Church member and bishop, and living gospel principals.
